You're right (I thought the same). From the article, "...from a single phosphorus atom embedded in a silicon crystal." So something like the post above...

However it's probably twenty years away...
I've only read the Yahoo report.

In that case, maybe what my friend suggested is correct.
Perhaps it is something to do with the valence states of the Phosphorus atom (+1, +3, +5).

What programs are absolutely necessary on start up?
What programs are absolutely necessary on start up? The reason I ask is because after I changed my AV program, my computer takes much longer to start up (this is after I enter my password at the welcome page). My Dell Inspiron 14 laptop came with McAfee. After the 30 day trial was over, I...
